Word Root Exercise: Ana

OK, on a cool Monday morning in Salisbury, Massachusetts, here is a worksheet on the Greek root ana-. It means up, back, again, against, and throughout. This is a very productive root in English; it produces such high-frequency words as analogy, analyze, and anatomy.

These are unquestionably words students must know before graduating high school. But so, I would argue, are a couple of others that grow from this root, to wit, anagram and anathema.

.If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
